Your support helps essential worker families
Thanks for helping kids like these!
Heather is a mom of three children who all attend the Robert Mayer Child Development Preschool. She has twin toddlers and a daughter who is almost ready for kindergarten. She would like to share with how grateful she is that your support has made it possible for her family to continue to count on the Boys & Girls Club during the pandemic. She writes:
“When most other preschools closed due to COVID-19, the Boys & Girls Club's Robert Mayer Preschool stayed open. This was huge for us, because both my husband and I are essential workers. We needed to continue working and had no one else who could watch our children.
Each of my three children started at the Club at just 3 months old. It was clear from that very first day that we brought my oldest to the Club that we made the right choice. The love, compassion and care the teachers and administrators have showed to our entire family has been nothing short of exceptional.
The staff at Robert Mayer and the whole Boys & Girls Club organization have been and continue to be so important to us and we are so thankful for them. Our family has had our ups and downs and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley has always been there to support us. When my husband lost his job, the Club worked with us and provided some financial assistance when we needed it to ensure that the children could continue their attendance, which allowed my husband to secure a new job. We are truly grateful for that assistance!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Huntington Valley has become family to us. And as their slogan says, 'Great Futures Start Here.' We agree with that 100%! We know our children will have great futures, and that’s largely due to the great educational foundation, kindness, and care they continue to receive at Robert Mayer Preschool. Thank you so much and we are forever grateful.”
Your support is what makes it possible for the Club to always be there for the kids and families who need us most. Thank you.
